 Syntax of JSP Scriptles are:

  //java codes

JSP Scriptlets begins with <% and ends %> .We can embed any amount of java code in the JSP Scriptlets. JSP Engine places these code in the _jspService() method. Variables available to the JSP Scriptlets are:

  • request:
    request represents the clients request and is a subclass of HttpServletRequest. Use this variable to retrieve the data submitted along the request.

  //java codes
   String userName=null;

  • response:
    response is subclass of HttpServletResponse.
  • session:
    session represents the HTTP session object associated with the request.
  • out:
    out is an object of output stream and is used to send any output to the client.

Other variable available to the scriptlets are pageContext, application,config and exception.
